I present to you: 621 Wendel Street.

A charming 1920 Craftsman bungalow doesn't sound like a place anyone would want to give up — but it's on the Houston housing market.

The Woodland Heights home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, per listing agent Stephen Warrell of Martha Sotheby's International Realty. And it could be yours for just $675,000.

“This quintessential craftsman bungalow has been lovingly cared for and improved to provide modern conveniences while maintaining the original character and charm," Warrell shared with Chron.

If you're looking for an old-school vibe with a modern twist, look no further. The fully covered front porch is the ideal spot for early morning reading and a cup of coffee, and it even comes with a ceiling fan to keep you cool in the Texas heat.

“I really love how this home sits on this lot, it sits proudly on the corner and is flanked by beautiful trees. It’s so special to still have these homes preserved and improved over time while keeping their original form," said Warrell.

The living room is the perfect place to flop down and catch up on your shows after a long day at work.

Hardwood floors and wooden shutters complement the home's modern touches, which include Carrera marble in the bathrooms and a farmhouse sink, per Warrell.

Speaking of bathrooms, the home's primary bathroom has been updated with marble counter tops, a walk-in shower and a clawfoot tub. It also lets in plenty of natural light, as does the rest of the home.

Bathrooms are important, and this home has a beautiful one.

Crown molding, built-in shelves, and a classic wood-burning fireplace grace the living room of the home. And fully landscaped garden areas complete the outside look.
